Dr. Angela Canfield Held First Talk in the 2015 Inspiring Smiles Series

Standard

(SAVANNAH, GA) Dr. Angela Canfield of Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah, GA held the first talk in the 2015 Inspiring Smiles Series on Tuesday, January 27 at 6 p.m. The discussion was titled “Mercury Removal in the the Mouth.”

The environmental health effects of mercury, primarily found in mercury-laden sliver fillings, include brain damage and neurological problems especially for children and the unborn babies of pregnant women.

Along with Dr. Canfield, Dr. Mark Domanski of Crossroads Chiropractic and Wellness Center presented. Dr. Domanski presented common symptoms of mercury poisoning, to include: burning sensation in extremities (peripheral neuropathy); skin discoloration (pink cheeks, fingertips and toes); swelling  and shedding of the skin; profuse sweating; increased heart rate (tachycardia); increased salivation; elevated blood pressure (hypertension); hair loss (alopecia); transient rashes; muscle weakness (hypotonia); increased sensitivity to light; memory impairment and brain fog; kidney disfunction; insomnia and mood disorders such as anxiety, depression, and emotional lability; and tremors.

Dr. Canfield followed Dr. Domanski’s talk to explain where mercury is found in the mouth and how to remove it safely. She also explained the composition on dental Amalgam, which consists of mercury and alloy powder. Before recommending anything to a patient, Dr. Canfield said she explains the precautions people should take when geting their silver fillings removed to avoid getting sick.

The Inspiring Smiles Series was free to attend, but there was an encouraged donation to the Savannah Children’s Theatre. To RSVP for the next lecture, “Oral DNA and Periodontal Testing” on Tuesday, April 14, from Noon to 1 p.m., call Dr. Canfield at 912-349-0472.

(SAVANNAH, GA) AWWIN, Inc (Assisting Working Women In Need), Habitat for Humanity Effingham County Collaborate

Standard

(SAVANNAH, GA) AWWIN, Inc (Assisting Working Women In Need), Habitat for Humanity Effingham County and Grace Culture International of Guyton, GA have partnered to present a Women’s Build Brunch on Saturday, January 31 at 11 a.m. at the Mighty Eighth Air Force Museum. The goal of the Women’s Build Brunch will be to provide more information about the upcoming Habitat build, while potentially rallying at least 100 women to raise the $15,000 needed to build the home for a local grandmother. The brunch is also sponsored by Thrivent Financial Coastal Advantage Group and Two Chicks And A Trunk.

“Women are the key to helping more families with decent, healthy and affordable housing in Effingham County. We have to do a better job of involving women in all aspects of Habitat for Humanity,” said George Groce, construction manager.

Habitat for Humanity’s Women’s Build Program encourages women to make a difference by building homes and creating safe communities for children to grow up in. The program provides an environment where women can feel comfortable learning skills in construction which they may not have had the option to learn elsewhere. Habitat for Humanity Effingham County actively recruits and trains women to help build and maintain healthy and affordable homes. Women contractors and women owed businesses are also enlisted to assist with building processes.

The upcoming Habitat build is will be a home for a 74-year-old-grandmother who has been living in Rincon for 14 years while raising her four granddaughters and great grandson. Groundbreaking for the build is scheduled for Saturday, February 7 at 9:00AM

Directions to site:

Take Highway 21 to Rincon; turn onto Fourth Street (next to Rincon Elementary School); turn left onto Lexington Avenue; turn right onto Talmadge Avenue (entrance to Governor’s Ridge). The build site is on the left. Parking will be on the right.
